If you can't find a dedicated download for your sata drivers download the chip-set drivers for your motherboard and look though the folders. If you see a folder named SATA, thats the one you want on your flash drive. There should be SATA drivers on the CD that came bundled with your motherboard. They would likely be outdated but should work to get you going. I think its hit or miss depending on what chip-set your motherboard has. I just did a clean install to my new SATA drive from an IDE DVD-ROM drive with out a hitch. Windows must have had a driver for my system on the DVD.
